Your Mind Is What Your Brain Does for a Living: Learn How to Make It Work for You by Steven Jay Fogel
Your default programming–the automatic choices all of us make in life without even noticing–can sabotage you, but you can learn to interrupt your self-defeating behavior and make better choices.
Readers will take away step-by-step advice they can practice immediately.
Readers will learn:
- How default programming is formed, how it influences behavior, and how to disengage from negative programming to lead a more fulfilling life
- What scientists have discovered about our ability to “rewire” our brain to act in ways that will make us happier
- How to resolve long-term dysfunctional relationships that are causing stress, frustration, and pain
Put the past where it belongs–in the past. Be mindful, live in the present, and lead a fulfilling life full of possibilities!

My views: I was expecting a lot more from this book, but found it contained more about the author’s personal journey than about the information I had hoped it would have.
This post is written for the letter ‘Y’ for the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge 2014.
I had almost decided to get hold of this book till i read your views at the end. Still I guess there will be something to be learnt!

Yes, I guess it had to do with my expectations as well, Archana.

I have found that quite a bit with self-help books. I think it’s too easy for the writer to make it more of a memoir!

They should say so, don’t you think, Stephanie? 🙂
Corinne Rodrigues recently posted..Weekend Wonder Detox
The title is very engaging. I expected more from the book too, Corinne! 🙂 But I guess packaging is often more attractive than the contents. 🙂

Yes, the title drew me in too, Vidya. Never judge a book by it’s title, I suppose! 😉
